“Taking you from Bordeaux to Italy in one mouthful, Capperi is a wonderful (and tiny) pizzeria,” says Lataillade. Owner Bartolo Calderone is passionate about maintaining high standards of authentic, quality pizzas while experimenting with classic and new combinations. Produce is carefully sourced to ensure exceptional taste and excellence, and quality and attention to detail are at the heart of the business’s values. “Capperi is also part of Bordeaux’s Slow Food movement, which works to restore the food industry and the values it imposes on society,” she says. Bordeaux’s Slow Food movement encourages respect for the environment while paying producers a fair price for their work, as well as favouring locally sourced food. All of this is done with the goal of internationally increasing sustainability within the food industry. Order your pizza to go or reserve a table. For its delicious simplicity, the burrata pizza is particularly recommended (tomato sauce, mozzarella, apulian burrata, oregano and extra virgin olive oil). Don’t forget to order the tiramisu for dessert.
